Runaway: A Twist of Fate

posted by adventureaddict on - last edited - Viewed by 330 users

So, the sequel to the Runaway series is out today, just wondering if anyone had made the purchase for it yet?

I enjoyed the first two alot, and I know I will get the third installment eventually, but it won't be for a while. So Telltalers, any comments?

  • I'm playing it at the moment, quite enjoying it so far.

    Ridiculous.

    I remember cursing at Guybrush in Monkey Island 3 because he wouldn't search through the puddle of mud with his bare hands to find the gold tooth in front of the Chicken Bar. Sounds similar?!

    For me, the first one will always be a little special by virtue of when it was produced - a time when I thought adventure gaming was pretty much dead forever (2003, a very sad year). But as far as I recall (been a few years since I played it), it's an enjoyable adventure.

    The second one is a step down in my opinion because a) Brian morphs from hot nerd into gross wannabe surfer dude, and b) the ending is very unfulfilling (mostly just a segue into Runaway part 3).

    I'd recommend the first one at least, but online reviews would be far more objective than I. :)

    ...Okay, that was pretty horrible, haha.

    Ended up getting Twist of Fate, and I must say I'm enjoying it alot. I was a little confused about the storyline for a while there, but overall I think the game is a big step up from the previous two, and I'm probably in the minority, but I am really enjoying the new voice actors.

    The only problem I have with it at the moment is some of the items seem to blend into the background a little -too- well. I've been stuck a couple of times where pixel hunting was the solution.

    Press F2...

  • My A Twist of Fate review is up at Adventure Gamers. I ended up enjoying the game a lot. My biggest complaint is probably the lack of camera movement, but since it's not in 3D they can't really do that. I guess Telltale's style has spoiled me. :D

    I really liked the way the storyline alternated between past and present and then the two parts converged at the end.

    I'd like to read it, Emily, but fear spoiling the game for myself - how spoilery is your review? :)

  • I worked very hard to avoid spoilers. It describes the opening cutscene and gives some basic info about who you're playing as and what the characters have to do in the first few chapters, but that's it.

    If you're already planning to play the game and want to go in completely cold, don't read it, but if you don't mind hearing about the storyline's premise ahead of time then I think you're safe.
